Memory Keeping: Pocket Style!!!

Posted on

Memory keeping is super important because you can look back and everything is documented. It can be passed down for years as well! The pocket style is quick and simple! I have done all types of scrapbooking from small books to big books, digital and now pocket style. Here are my tips and ideas on the pocket style!

Project Life Supplies,

With all of the memory keeping I have done, I have loved how little supplies you need to create an amazing album! Of course you can always get all the goodies and have lots of options. Although that sometimes makes it overwhelming to have too many options! Just to get started, all you need is an Album, Pages, Journal Pens, and a Card Collection Kit of your choice! My favorites are always the all occasion/every day ones! I love bright colors too!

Memory Keeping,

I honestly think that Project Life or Pocket Style Memory Keeping is the best way to go for someone who has never scrapbooked before. Project Life is cheaper, easier, and quicker. Now of course that can always be viewed differently by each person but being a scrapbooker, a digital scrapbooker, and a Project Life scrapbooker, that is what I would say.

Cheaper: Of course, you can always purchase tons of goodies but technically you could go as simple as the items above. You can always get a paper trimmer, adhesive, and go all out but you can also go simple too.

Easier: With Project Life, you can drop your photos in the pockets, journal on a card, and drop it in. I love that and how everything in the card collection coordinates. There is no need to pick your colors, papers, embellishments, and find ways to fill a large album page.

Quicker: It can be fairly quick to complete an entire album because of the few items you need and the ease of coordination.

Of course, you can always embellish, change up the colors, add layers, and go all out with Project Life as well! 🙂 It really is a fun way to keep your memories cherished forever. I hope this has given you some ideas and inspiration to start preserving your memories!!! You can see some of my other albums here, here, and here!

Memories In The Making!!!

Posted on

Awesome Emboss Resist,

The Memories In The Making Project Life Card Collection is one of the items that you can earn for FREE through Sale-A-Bration!!! I thought the cards were super fabulous because many of them are window sheets with frames and borders and amazing designs. There are a few that are gold on one side and silver on the other. WOOT WOOT! I love how there is something for everyone there. The other pieces have embossed prints on them so you can have fun and add color for an emboss resist technique. Love it!!!

The card above uses one of the embossed patterns and I brushed over it with an Elegant Eggplant Sponge Dauber to give it some color. Since the card is 4″ x 6″, I had to cut it down a bit (4″ x 5-1/4″). I added some Whisper White Cotton Ribbon. For the greeting, I used the Big News Stamp Set. I layered it onto Elegant Eggplant and added it to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I thought it needed a little bling so I added some Dazzling Details to all of the little dots in the scroll. 🙂

Project Life Card Collection,

I didn’t want to waste that little strip that I cut off so I created this card. I took another Memories In The Making Card, stamped the greeting from the Tin Of Cards Stamp Set in Stazon Ink and added it to my card front once it dried. Be very careful when stamping on Window Sheet as it can be slick and want to slide all over. Straight up and down! This is one of those cards that the dotted wreath is gold on the back side. I’m a silver girl though! 🙂 Since you can see adhesive on Window Sheet, I just added it to the left hand side where the patterned paper is. It is held securely with Tear & Tape so I don’t have to worry about it coming off!

Awesome Ombre,

I wanted to do another one so I took another Card from the Collection that was embossed stripes. I used my Sponge Daubers to add color in this amazing ombre pattern. I used Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, and Night of Navy. I loved how it turned out. I wrapped some Silver Metallic Thread around a few (hundred) times on the left hand side and tied a knot. I added it to a Bermuda Bay card base and did the awesome greeting again from the Big News Stamp Set. Perfect Man Card!!!

Memories In The Making,

Then with the little strip that I had to cut off, I created this card. Again I took one of the Window Sheet Cards and stamped in Craft White Ink with the Tin of Cards Stamp Set. I adhered it on with Tear & Tape under the strip of ombre! I love how these turned out!

You can use Project Life Card Collections for greeting cards and memory keeping. They are so much fun and so versatile. You can check out a few of my Project Life Album Pages here!

Memory Keeping with Project Life!!!

Posted on

Have you heard about Project Life??? It is a wonderful line of memory keeping products that make it fun and simple. For anyone who has never scrapbooked before, this is totally for you because it is simple and yet exactly what you want – organized photos with information to remember through the years!!! To get started all you need are your photos, an album, pages, a Card Collection Kit, and Journaling Pens. It is that simple! I’m serious!!! Of course you can always add more embellishments and do more to the pages but I think they look great when they are simple! My style of memory keeping is lots of photos and some journaling with very little foo foo. Everyone has their style!

Project Life Family Page,

Here is a page that I did for my Family Album! This album has about 2-4 pages each year from the Family Reunion. I love how I didn’t have to cut the pictures at all; I just slid them right in! Also, I loved the 4 pockets for me to journal on. It was perfect. Another bonus I love about Project Life is that many of the cards have a grid or lines on them which make it perfect to write without trailing down or going big to little when you write. Come on, I’m not the only one out there who does that?? 🙂 I used a little washi tape and a few stickers from the Accessory Pack. That little green heart on the far right is covering up a mistake…..come on we all make them and just know how to fix it!!!!

Project Life Memory Page,

Here is another page that I did which was quick and simple. I popped the photos in, a decorative Card Collection and a journaled card collection with a little washi tape!!! Love it!!

I have done “traditional” scrapbooking in all size. I have done digital scrapbooking and now I have done Project Life. Each one has its pros and cons and it is all based on personal preference! I have done a few classes on Project Life and I have really enjoyed seeing all of the creations!!! Stay tuned as I will be showing you some OTHER things that you can create with the Project Life Card Collection!!

Scrapbooking the Little Ones!!!

Posted on

I have created a little 6″ x 6″ Scrapbook for my Mom and Dad that includes just a few pages of every grandchild when they were born! It includes the baby’s information and of course family photos. I love how you can see the changes in each photo as the family grows! Even though the last grandchild (my niece) was born last September, I just finished her pages now! I’m not that far behind…in the world of scrapbooking that’s practically caught up! 🙂

Lullaby Scrapbook,

I used the new Lullaby Designer Series Paper which is just precious. I also noticed that you shouldn’t be fooled by the name….there really isn’t anything that says BABY in this paper. If you like yellows, corals, blues, and browns this is the paper for you! Then for the journal tags, I used a few from my Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Collection. This is another wow item! This card collection comes with 100, (that’s right) one hundred double sided cards! Some of these cards are just designs and others have patterns or words already on them but they are fabulous!!! Of course, they are the perfect size to slide into your Project Life Photo Pocket Pages but you can use them on other projects like this one or even cards! For my little decoration, I used the Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower in Crisp Cantaloupe and some pearls! Love it!

Lullaby Scrapbook,

Here is the second page (double page spread). Again I used the Lullaby Paper for my backgrounds! I added in the heart from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and added my greeting on a piece of Hello Honey punched out with the Modern Label Punch!

I was able to complete these 4 pages in a matter of minutes with my Designer Series Paper (and the list of coordinating colors in the catalog), some punches, and the Project Life Card Collection! Scrapbooking made easy let me tell you! I hope you give it a try either as a new scrapbooker or a seasoned scrapbooker!

Thank you to everyone who wished me well on my Anniversary last week. The WINNER are: Deb P, Vicki M, and Tanishae T!
